Indexer Notes

According to Len Wein, Jeff Jones inked the last 9 pages: "'The Stalker from Beyond'...the last nine pages of that story were inked by Jeff Jones..." (http://www.tcj.com/the-len-wein-interview/2/). As per Nick Caputo, we had formerly credited "all or most of pages 11-20" to Mike Kaluta.
